Hanging out in the Coves

Probably taken along Centre Cove Pond while hiking along the river.


Thames River near the Mill in Dorchester, right way up!

This photo was taken of the Thames with my 30 year old Nikon FE2 this summer.


Near the Mill in Dorchester

Taken with my 30 year old 35mm Nikon FE2 this summer near the Mill in Dorchester.


Clay Beaches

Clay beaches are perfect for wildlife, including nesting turtles!


The Forks

A different view of The Forks, looking across the river at Labatt Park.


Greenway Sunrise

Early Spring sunrise at Wonderland and Riverside looking towards downtown.


Sunrise at Springbank Dam

Early winter morning as the sun pokes past the dam, the steam rises from the water, which is much warmer than the -24C air temperature.


Twilight over the Thames

The Thames River looking down stream from the walk bridge in Springbank Park.


More Fall Colours on the Thames River

Picture of the Thames and the old Dam and Pump House in Springbank Park, October 2014.


Fall on the Thames

A look at the South Branch of the Thames River in the Fall of 2014. Looking east at the river from White's Bridge on Hamilton Rd. East.


Sunrise at the Forks

The fountain was all aglow as the City was waking up for the day.


Meadowlilly Sunrise

A peaceful early morning fog enjoyed from the Meadowlilly Bridge.


The Relic

A reminder of former times.


"The Guard"

Taken in spring 2015 opposite the old Pump House.


Springbank Walking Bridge, Ben Benedict, 2010

The photo was taken from a vista behind Springbank Gardens. Like many spots along the Thames River, small trails lead to these big, bright vistas or man and nature living harmoniously together. While that is not always the case, this is a good example of the wonder that is available along the Thames.


North Branch Thame sRiver, Ben Benedict, 2009

The photo was taken during a sketching trip with fellow artist Ruth Strebe in 2009. I love the intensity and immediacy of the rocks juxtaposed against the sweeping treeline and solitary tree standing guard in the background.


East Park Rapids, Ben Benedict, 2010

This was taken during London Pride 2010 at East Park Golf Course. What struck me was the way the eroding bank and rapids seemed to 'speak' to each other. I think this happens frequently for those who are willing to spend time with the river.


Fishing the Thames.

Just east of White's bridge. You'd never know you were in a city!


Opposite East Park golf course.

Follow the shoreline route east through Meadowlilly Woods ESA and you will reach this nice lookoff at a bend in the river. It is a nice spot for a picnic.


Canoeing on the Thames

Was at the Forks of the Thames and I saw this couple enjoying a canoe ride on the Thames.
